Ok, this is pretty cool. I've been following this technology for 20 years.

Electronic tattoos that read your mind.

Seriously cool, and scary, stuff.

So here's the problem I see. This is nearly invisible technology that potentially has the capability to read your mind, physical state, become a cell phone etc. So theoretically you could slap one of these on someone without their knowledge and know everything about them pretty darn quickly. I can see this destroying the concept of privacy as I can't really envision any defence against it.

On the bright side, you could effectively work on anything you like anywhere, anytime, hands free. No more carrying your cell phone/laptop around, eventually no more wallet I expect. Since the idea of privacy will eventually just disappear since it can't be enforced we're all going to be come tattoo'd nudist hippies that work from the beach.

The concept of privacy is a pretty made up concept anyway.

It's stuff like this that makes a lot of Science Fiction stories, especially military-space adventures, irritating. A lot of authors just don't have a feel for what future tech "ought" to feel like in terms of practicality and usability.

Of course the great SF authors either have stories that transcend outmoded technologies... or they are olde stories that have predicted future trends as they collide with the present, correctly, and thus never outdate, just have a "parallel universe" feel.

Future tech ought to feel like it doesn't exist.

I'm calling it: In the next 200 years the human race will effectively become gods via invisible technology and genetic manipulation. We'll be age proof, damage resistant, telepathic and likely telekinetic to some level. We still won't have an effective space program and the vast majority of people will still think "Chinese Idol" is the shiznit while they turn the volume up with their mind sitting on their forcefield couch mowing down taco bell and bacon substitute in their bikini model bodies.

I'd be happy if they just figured out how to keep aging eyesight from going to hell. Smiley: glare

Um, I would suggest that if this was so it would be the other way around.

Regardless, I'm not blind. I just can't focus very well on little letters anymore. It's inevitable - just like hair loss and wrinkles.

Contemporary technology means glasses are a heck of a lot more flattering than they used to be. If you look at someone and think "blech" about their glasses...its the person's own idiosyncratic tastes at work.

Or you know, Its an american in the 90th percentile with third world health care. Smiley: sly

Someone just invented glasses that cure colorblindness. That's a start, right?

I don't know how they work, but I've heard that they come with 3-D side effects.
